The next round of the Mounted Games Winter League at Myerscough is Friday 29th March – can we hold on to the lead in the seniors??

What a fab first round we had on Friday night, our junior team finished 3rd after a nail biting run off and our super seniors romped home to take the win! absolutely brilliant riding from everyone and a fabulous display of sportsmanship from you all. well done

The first round of the Winter League Mounted Games competition will start in November (after bad weather halted play in October).  Can we regain our junior title?? can we do one better and win the senior title this year? come along to watch, its always a fantastic night – racing usually starts at 7pm and its all held at Myerscough International Arena
